The pay of Bob Dudley, BP’s chief executive, tripled last year despite the legal threats still hanging over the company from the Deepwater Horizon disaster.
The oil boss received $8.7m (£5.2m) in salary, bonus and share awards last year, according to the company’s annual report, compared with $2.6m in 2012.
When contributions to his pension were included, Dudley, 58, got $13.2m for 2013 and has already accumulated a retirement package worth $2m a year.
